EXTERIOR LIGHTING

4/2/2018 - NEPTUNE, NJ
OCCASIONALLY, WHEN GOING TO USR MY VEHICLE, I WILL TRY TO UNLOCK THE CAR WITH MY FOB AND NOTICE IT WON'T RESPOND. UPON STARTING MY VEHICLE, THE ENGINE TURNS OVER BUT MY ELECTRONICS DON'T FULLY ACTIVATE. MY CLOCK IS OFF, THE RADIO DOESN'T TURN ON, AND I CAN'T USE THE DOME LIGHTS. HOWEVER, MY DASHBOARD INFORMATION PANEL DOES DISPLAY MY ODOMETER, FUEL, AND TEMP GAUGE, AND I CAN SCROLL THROUGH THE DISPLAY OPTIONS, BUT THEY HAVE ALL RESET. MY TELLTALE WARNING LIGHTS COME ON BRIEFLY LIKE A NORMAL START, AND WHEN THEY GO AWAY MY TPMS TELLTALE REMAINS FLASHING, INDICATING IT'S NOT GETTING A SIGNAL FROM MY TIRES. FINALLY, THOUGH MY ENGINE SOUNDS LIKE IS RUNNING, I CAN'T PUT MY VEHICLE IN GEAR. MY ONLY FIX HAS BEEN TO LET THE VEHICLE SIT WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING FOR ANY WHERE BETWEEN 2 AND 20 MINUTES, TURN THE VEHICLE OFF, AND RETRY. ONCE IT FINALLY DECIDES TO TURN ON NORMAL, THE CLOCK WILL DISPLAY, ALTHOUGH RESET, MY TPMS NO LONGER DISPLAYS, AND I CAN GET INTO GEAR. TIME SITTING SEEMS TO NOT EFFECT IT BECAUSE IT CAN SIT FOR DAYS AND WORK NORMAL OR HOURS AND ACT UP. MY ONLY POSSIBLE EXPLANATION SEEMS TO INVOLVE THE WEATHER AFTER GETTING VERY COLD OR EXCESSIVE PRECIPITATION, BUT EVEN THAT ISN'T NECESSARILY GOING TO GUARANTEE THIS PROBLEM. IT MAY JUST BE PURE RANDOMNESS AND IT DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT AT ALL.

TAKATA RECALL: I HAD TOOK MY CAR INTO THE DEALERSHIP MULTIPLE TIMES WHILE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY BECAUSE IT GETS STUCK WHEN SHIFTING GEARS AND WON+T PICK UP THE POWER WHEN ACCELERATING. WHILE THE ON THE HIGHWAY IT DRIVES HORRIBLE AND THE STEERING IS UNPREDICTABLE. EACH TIME THAT I TOOK IT INTO THE HYUNADAI DEALERSHIP THEY CAN+T FIGURE OUT WHAT WRONG WITH IT. WHILE IT WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY I DID TAKE IT TO OTHER PLACES TO SEE WHAT THEY WOULD SAY AND THEY ALL NOTICED THE ISSUE AND STATED THAT IT APPEARS THAT IT+S WITH THE TRANSMISSION. I DID CONTACT HYUANDAI DIRECTLY AND THEY REFUSED TO FIX THE PROBLEM AND NOW THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY AND I AM SCREWED!
